Topic: Re: Phone Calls re exH debts
Written By: ValMc - 3 months ago
Forum: UK Divorce Forum
Thank you - I will try the * trick. I did phone Barclaycard (I'm with them as well) and told them that he had never lived at my address but they wouldn't do anything. I'm glad I had to move now - otherwise I suspect I would be getting his post as well!!!!

Thank you for that - the debt collection agency were happy for me to give his current address and to remove my landline from their records - it is credit cards that are repeatedly calling. They are automated calls so no human at the other end. When they first started I contacted the credit card company but they wouldn't do anything.

Hiya My ex and I split 2 years ago and our divorce and Consent Order were finalised in February 2016. He ran up huge debts during our relationship - mainly the reason for our split. We sold the marital home and I bought a place of my own. Less than 2 years later he has obviously spent the 6 figure sum he got despite moving straight in with someone else. I kept our old landline number when

It is not just men who lose out - I owned my home before I met my now ex-husband. When we split (his idea) he took half my house although I was solely on the mortgage and paid every bill in the house (again solely in my name). He paid for the food but that was it. He still got approx. 45% of the house. Needless to say, I will not be marrying again as I have now got another home and have no in

Having been where your wife is now, I would echo the above. Try to give her as much space as possible to come to terms with what has happened. A betrayal of trust is like a hammer blow - she will need space to come to terms with it. Only then can you both decide if the marriage is worth trying to save. In my case, I tried very hard for 9 months to forgive (you can never forget) and we did go

It certainly does. However I am worried because the idiot hasn't realized that he is still paying for my monthly Gardeners World Magazine, and his life insurance policy - I am the owner of the policy and the beneficiary but the direct debit comes out of his bank account. Every month the magazine pops through the door I smile!!! If the cash has run out he may start checking his bank account (but

Thank you for your replies - it is a relief. HatMan - yes and no - I spent 14 out of the 16 years we were together worrying about his debts - thought I was past all of that but just goes to show that a leopard can rarely change his spots!!! I have spent a couple of sleepless nights but I did speak to Barclaycard again last night and they have said they will contact him to ask him to update his

My ex-husband and I separated in June 2015 and our divorce was finalised in February 2016. During the course of our relationship he ran up massive debts, and upon the sale of my home (I owned it before I met him) I gave him just short of £130,000 in October 2015. By November 2015, he declared on his court form that he had assets of £65000 with debts of 9000, I have a Consent Order and at the
Topic: Insurance Policy

Forum: UK Divorce Forum
My ex-husband and I were divorced last February with a Consent Order obtained. This week I received a letter from an insurance company (re-directed, addressed to me) informing me of a change of premium. The insurance policy is on his life, he is paying the premiums but I am the beneficiary. I was very surprised to find out that it is still in force and it did not form part of our financial set

I am sorry I cannot answer your query but I am sure that someone will be able to soon. I, too, was married to a man who was totally irresponsible with money - it was horrible and I divorced him on that ground (and others). It has cost me a lot to get out of it but it has been wonderful not having to worry about letters coming through the door. I am in charge of my own financial destiny and it

We did not file a Form E as my ex really did not want to so we just did a financial statement. On this he stated that he was not/had no intention of co-habiting whilst cohabiting! I knew about this lie before the consent order was stamped by the court but decided not to do anything about it. Not sure if I could have given him a bit less money but in then end I just wanted it over and done with

Thank you for that David - not that I am intending to get married again just yet!!! I'm interested in what you say about the differences between cohabitees and married couples though. The solicitor who advised me during my recent divorce said that it actually made very little difference that we were married. We lived together for 8 years before being married for 8 years and had no children tog

Yes probably - I used to think Pre-nups were a very sad thing for a couple to do but now I would insist no matter who has the biggest pot. You live and learn.

Absolute now issued - I am £130000 lighter but am free. If I ever marry again, it will be a pre-nup for me (unless he is a millionaire lol). Good luck everyone - it has been a horrible 7 months but a massive weight has been lifted. I wish you all well.

Too late then coz already stamped by the court - just thought I might be able to re-negotiate because he lied on his financial statement - never mind - its nearly over. I have not come out of this very well financially but at least I am free.

laughingirl - Yes I think he got a good deal too. However, I now have the Consent Order and my solicitor will apply for the absolute next Tuesday so nearly at an end. I am tempted to re-visit our agreement due to the fact that this was based on what we both needed to set up separate homes (my son had to give me £20000 in order for me to do it - didn't want to see his mum living in a rotten are

How true - he had spent over 60k within 4 weeks according to his financial statement!!! Until the divorce is finalized and the consent order agreed, I cannot rest easy - I just want the back-up of the threat of disclosing his lie so he sticks to our original agreement. As he has spent so much already, I don't want him changing his mind and coming back for more.

Yes I do believe in upholding the law and I do believe that it applies to everyone - if not, where is the line drawn? As I keep on reading on here, divorce settlements are based on need. If his needs were not as stated, I may not have had to mortgage myself into retirement. BTW I did not make the comment about criminal offence.

My husband and I are in the process of divorcing. We have our nisi and I am just waiting for the Consent Order to be agreed and the absolute obtained. We split in June - he asked for the divorce. Within days he put our house on the market and filed for divorce - I objected and he agreed that I could divorce him. During our marriage he ran up debts of 50000 which I paid off by remortgaging the
